The EGR Story
Founded by edward,
Greg & Rod Horwill
Working first out of a garage from their family home, brothers Greg and Rod Horwill purchased acrylic from Nylex and experimented with developing innovatively styled acrylic coffee tables. In 1973, Greg moved to Brisbane and borrowed funds to officially start EGR with a vision of expanding their interior products business and entering the automotive accessories market with a product that would protect quartz halogen headlights that were breaking easily.
EGR, which represents the first name initials of their father Edward, and the two brothers Greg and Rod, was formed and production began soon thereafter on acrylic headlight covers for the iconic XD Ford Falcon.
Today, EGR employs over 1,000 people, services 180 markets, and supplies some of the world’s largest OEMs and the automotive aftermarket with precision-engineered, premium accessories including the award-winning EGR RollTrac™ bed cover. With manufacturing plants and warehouses in North America, Europe, Thailand, China, and Australia, EGR is truly a global company with a vision for success.
Servicing over 180
markets and employing
over 1,000 people, EGR is
truly a global company.
